Nicole has been writing for almost as long as she can remember. Her writing career started in grade four with Enid Blyton's Naughtiest Girl in the School fan-fiction and quickly spread across to problematically titled short stories about a group of school kids with super powers called Twilight Zone. (12 year old Nicole was unfortunately unaware that there was another popular series sharing this title...)
Her biggest inspirations are writers like Isobelle Carmody who had first novels published from an early age.
Other favourite authors: Patricia Briggs, Holly Black, Melissa Marr, Juliet Marillier, Kevin Hearn, Sarah Waters, Jacqueline Carey, Phillipa Gregory and Joanne Harris.
Favourite fandoms: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Glee, Smash, The Vampire Diaries, Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, Friends and Sherlock.
Nicole writes across the spectrum of sexuality, has recently had a lesbian excerpt featured in the Little Raven Feature of the Week blog as well as having a gay short story in Q: Queermance Volume 1.
Also likes candles, incense and Gilmore Girls.
